Mt. Province provides free hospital services to 319 birthing mothers

by Juliet B. Saley

Bontoc, Mt. Province (6 February) -- Some 391 birthing mothers benefited from a provincial order exempting birthing mothers from the payment of all hospital services while confined in one of the hospitals under the operation and management control of the provincial government of Mt. Province.

Executive No. 30, s.2007 was issued by Governor Maximo B. Dalog on August 21, 2007 after cases of birthing mothers death have been registered in the province for the period January to July 2007.

There were then four cases of maternal death recorded in the province and one prevalent reason given in each case was the non-availment of hospital service due to poverty in the family or lack of the needed money for hospitalization.

Last year, the provincial government spent P579,233.00 for the 391 birthing mothers who availed of the program.

This order is not applicable to members of PhilHealth including their qualified beneficiaries and or those covered by a separate health insurance with similar design and purpose given by other insurance providers.

The same exemption policy shall not apply to patients who opt to stay in private rooms and or "de luxe" rooms of hospitals during the period of confinement.

This program is also in support of the provincial government to the fifth Millennium Development Goal (MDG) which is to Improve Maternal Health. (PIA-MP) [top]
